Bug Description

Ubuntu 10.10 maverick amd64

Bought the ati juniper 5750 card for more 3d power, the juniper have none 3d support with free radeon drivers so i have to install the fglrx. The install runs into bogus, the closing "aticonfig --initial" could be executed cause there was no /etc/ati folder in the filesystem.

So i searched all fglrx* packages with midnight commander and copied the folder with his files in place. Now the aticonfig runs well and fglrx was able to give me the desktop back. This is a ugly bug, cause so many things like jockey relies on a running desktop and this borkes the desktop up.
